Tjie Roman Calendar was imposed by Romulus, the founder of 
■^ine, about 716 B. C, who divided the year into ten months, the 
. . .st of which was March, then April, May, June, Quintil, after- 
wards called Julius, and Sextil, (afterwards called August,) then 
I Septomber, October, November and December., The confubion 
' and disorder occasioned by this division of the year was. so great, 
J in the time of Julius Csesar, that after thc« battle of Pharaalia, 
!• which occurred B. C. 48, he looked upon the reformation of the 
calendar as not unworthy his attention. Accordingly, he sent for 
t!ie famous astromer Sosigene.s from Alexandria, who ordered the 
year according to the cours* of the sun, and composed a calendar 
of 365 d=^y^> leaving out the six hours to form a day at the end of 
ovcry fourlidi year, whicli day was tod)o inserted in the mouth Qf 
Februarys after the 24th of that mouth. The diftercncc of time \]

January, the first month, tf^s so called from Janus, a» ancient 
king of Italy, vfko was deified after his deaih, and is derived from 
the Latin word Januarius. * 

F.^BRUARY, the second month, is derived;from the Latin y^ord Feb- 
ru8, to purify, hence Februarius, for in this month the ancient Ror.

STATISTICAL ALMANAC, 



at the period of the reformation, was no less than ninetf days ; 
the next 3'ear, therefore, Tvas constituted of fifteen months, or 
four hundred and forty-four days. 

This reformation was made B. C. 45, and was introduced the ' 
year following. In this form did the calendar asd account of time 
stand till the mtrocluct'on of the Georgian Calendar. 

JEWISH TIME. —The Jewish hours were coropnted from sun- 
rise ; their third hour divided the space between sunrise and 
noo'^ ; the ninth h^nr divided the space between noo^ aud sunt. at' 
but in the New Testament we find that they sometimes make use 
of the Roman reckoL'ings of thtir hours. The Roman reckoning 
^;as the same as ours, beginning at midnight and reckoning to 
noon, twelve hours, and ngain from noon to midnight. 

The Hebrews divided their nightb into four watches of three 
hours each. The first from six to nine in the evening •. the sec- 
ond from nine to 12 ; the third from, 12 to 3 in the morning, and 
last to 6 or sunrise. 

MOHAMMEDAN TIME.— The Mohammedan year consists of 
twelve lunar months, each containing 29 days, 12 hours and 792 
scruples, [1080 scruples make one houx*] so that the year consists 
of three hundred and fifty-four days, 8 hours and eight hundred 
and sixty-four scruples. In order to reduce this year to an in- 
tegral number of days, a cycle of thirty was chosen as the moit 
convenient period, because 30 times eight hours, and eight hun- 
dred and sixty-four scruples, amounts exactly to eleven days, and 
in this cycle there are nineteen years of three hundred and fifty- 
four, and eleven of three hundred and fifty-five days. 

CHINESE TIME.— The Chinese divide the day and night into 
twelve equal parts, beginning their' reckoning from midnight ; 
hence their hours are double tjhe length of ours. 

The common Chinese year coKsist of twelve lunar months, and 
their intercalary year has thirteeen. Their months have no sub- 
divisien, that is, they have no weeks. Their common way of da- 
ting Ib by the day q{ the month and the year of the reigning em- 
peror ; as for example, they say fifth of th ^ sixth moon in the 11 
twelth year of Kia-ring. They have a cycle of sixty years, b.utjj, 
this is made use of only in books and by the literati. The cylc/e 
of nineteen years is used by those who regulate the calendars- — 
The moon with which their year cMnmences is that which falls 
nearest to the fifteenth degree of Aguarions, corresponding to the 
third or fourth of February. 

The Chinese date the commencement of their spring the in- 
stant the sun enters this degree, when they "wish each other a hap- 
py New Year.

STATISTICAL ALMANAC. 



BEGINNING OF THE YEAR IN VARIOUS NATIONS. 

The Clialdeanp' nnd Egvptiausi' year irere dated irom tlie autum- 
nal equinox. The eccltTbiaetical year of the Jews began in the 
hpring ; but in civil nll'nivi* they retain the epoch of the Eygtian 
year. The ancient 'Chincfe reckoned from the nev moon nearest 
the middle of Aquarius. The year of RomulutJ coihmenced in 
Maich, and that of Numain January. The Turns nud Arabs date 
tlfeir year from tne Kth of July. Drerufchid, Kiug of Persia, ob- 
bo rved on the day of his public entry into Persepolie, that the 
sun entered into Arrofj ; &nd in commem.cration of this fortunate 
event he ordered tb-e beginning of the year to be i'«moved from 
the autumnal to the vernal equinox. The Mexicans begin tlkoir 
year in February, when the leaves begin to grow green. Their 
year consiete of eighteen months, having tveenty days eaeh, the 
lrt.«!t five days arc epont in mirth, and no business is Euflferoi to be 
done, not even any services at the templci. The ^bbybsiniang 
have five-idle days at the end'^f their year, which commences on 
tke 26th of August. The American Indians reckon from the first 
appearance of the new moon fit the vernal equinox. The Mahom- 
etans begin their year the minute in which the sun enters Aries. 
Th€ Venetians, Florentines and the Pisans in Italy,- begin the 
year at the vernal equinox. The French year during the reign of 
the Merovingian race, began on the day on whiil) the troops Were 
reviewed, which was the first day of Mnrch. Under the Curlovin- 
giauB it began on Christmas day, aKd under the Capetians on Eas- 
ter day. The ecclesiastical begins on the first Sunday in Ad-vent. 
Charles IX appoiuted, in 1564, that for the luture the civi'l ye%r 
should commence on the first of January The Julian calendar, 
which Was so called from Julius Caesar, and is the old account of 
the year, was reformed by Pope Gregory in 1582, which pliiu was 
suggested by Lewis Lilio, a Calabrian Astronomer. 

OLD AND NEW CHRISTMAS. 
The lawful year is 305 days and hour.-}. The mcnsared year 
is 3tJ5 days 6 hours 48 minutes and 57 seconds, making an annu- 
al loss of 11 minutes and 3 seconds. The loss in 100 years is 18 
hours. But when Gregory made hi« alterations in the calendar, 
he found nineteen to be an odd number. He had therefore to 
approximate. He threw aside a day each for the 1st, 2d and 3d c 
centuries, and reserved the day for the fourth century. By this 
arrangement 12 days would be lost in 1600 years, changing old 
Christmas to new Christmas. 



CHANGEa OF THE MOON.— The changes of the Inoon ftfe 
about eleven days later every year. Subtract eleven from the 
changes thisjyear and you will have the changes for next year. — i 
The Lunar year is about three hundred and fifty-foutdays and the I 
Solar year three hundred and 8ixty-five,'6 hours 48 mia. 67 sec. cls"

WHAT THEIR OPPONENTS SAY OF THE BAP- 
TISTS. — " The Baptists, who were formerly called Ana- 
baptists, and in later times Meunonites, were the orinrinal 
Waldenscsj and who have long, in the hi.<!itory of the 
church, received the honor of that origin On this account, 
the BeptistQ m^'j be considered as the only christian com- 
munity, which has stood since the days cf tho ^4 jos- 
tles, and 8S a chrijitiun society which has preserved 
pure the doctrines of the gospel through ullages. The 
perfectly correct external and internal economy of the 
Baptist denomination, tends to coufirm the truth, disputed 
by the Romieh church, '.hat tho reformation brought about 
in the sixteenth century, was in the highest dtgrce u?> 
neccBfiary ; and ut the same time goes to refute the erro- * ] 
neous notion of the Catholics, that their communion is the 
most ancient." 

Sn. >. is thfl testimony of Dr. Yprij, Professor of Theolo- 
gy at tSroningen, and of the Rev. J. J. Dtrmont, Chapla n 
-o tUii King of the Netherlands, both eminent ministers of 
the Dutch Reformed church, in their '^ Account of the 
Origin of the Dutch Baptists," which was publiehed at 
Breda in 1819.

If the truth of religion were to be judged of by the! readi- 
ness and cbcerfulnesa which a man of any sc^ot sbows in 
suffering, then the opinions and perRuasious of no sect can 
be truer or surer than those of the Anabpptists ; since 
) there have been none for these twtlve hundred years past, 
. that have been more grievously puinshed, or that have 
1 more cheerfully or steadfastly undergone, and even offered 
J themselves f-* the most cruel ports of punishment, than this 
fl people. — Cardinal Hosius, a Romanist and President of the 
JiCounciiJof Trent.,
